Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be troubling. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office often sees neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Groton chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a thorough exam to set up a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness associated with spinal issues like Groton neck pain.


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may perhaps bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in the ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office takes care of many Groton neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who experience dizziness visit doctors for assistance. What might the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When such proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One new case report of a female aged 24 years with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office starts chiropractic care with an exam that influences the development of a relieving Groton chiropractic treatment.


Linking imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed via a careful examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation worked for patients in a new paper. (3) Dizziness may result from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was tested in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a decrease in the intensity of the dizziness and pain, an improvement in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also reported.
